It’s all about optics. Lamb Connor is “conning” the voters. Campaigns conservative, says he loves Trump, yada yada.
Meanwhile, Saccone is an unattractive candidate who apparently comes from the “it’s my turn” camp.
We need attractive, energetic candidates who fight back, points out the lies, calls out the fact that Dem will always vote Dem. Sadly Saccone is not that person.
Trump’s point about Lamb, made repeatedly at his recent rally, is that no matter how conservative he appears (or even really is), the Demonrats impose srict party loyalty and punish those who do not adhere to it. He will vote the way Pelosi tells him to vote.
